Troy Coughlin and his JEG'S Mail Order Chevy Cavalier posted a run of 6.863 at 202.55 mph in the opening qualifying session. The run put him in the No. 26 position.

"We really needed to make a solid run in the second session," explained Troy. "Tomorrow morning (Saturday) will be an extremely important session for us and the other 34 cars. The morning session on Saturday is normally pretty good and we will spend the night figuring out what we need to do to get firmly into the field."
